Many newlyweds flock to the paradise Thai island of Koh Samui – and with good reason too. This stunning beach getaway is perfect for a romantic excursion with your significant other. Here’s a quick couple’s guide to this amorous island found in the Gulf of Thailand.

An Overview of the Island

Koh Samui is a resort island that’s perfect for relaxing and lounging. Travelling around the island is relatively easy via taxi or even an open-air truck. Most tours available here also have couples offers – so don’t forget to take advantage of these.

The Beaches

The beaches are Koh Samui’s premier attractions, and you’d be remiss not to visit these with your special someone. While Chaweng Beach is far the most popular option, it does tend to get crowded rather quickly. If you prefer something more intimate, consider Coral Cove or Crystal Bay.

Outdoor Excursions

Of course, Koh Samui isn’t just about beaches and resorts – if you and your partner like to explore and break a sweat, there’s plenty to do here! One of the best outdoor activities to try out is a trek to the Namuang Waterfalls.

Where to Stay

Being a resort destination, you won’t have too much trouble finding a place to stay here in Koh Samui. For starters, there’s plenty of Chaweng Beach resorts to choose from – like the Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort. Most of these also come with exclusives couples’ packages and deals. So, as with the tours, be sure to do your research ahead of time.
